    Main Conference Topics

    The oldest natural history collections as a challenge of research and public programs

    The theme will give us the opportunity to raise the reputation and interest for natural history collections all over the world. So, let us be very proud and help those entrusted with resourcing the stewardship of our treasures to recognize the value of natural history collections and ensure their ongoing protection. It is a great opportunity for natural history institutions to come together to share news and information in this exciting and unpredictable times.

    • Every museum has its own history and regardless of its age, every museum has the oldest specimens in its collections. What is their value in relation to recently obtained specimens. What do they tell us about the changes in biodiversity, the use of mineral resources, techniques of collecting, attitude towards nature and collecting, changes in legislation, code of ethics...  Why are our oldest collections so special.

    • The history of natural history museums matters. The public seems to like natural history museums very much. However, the developement of natural history museums does not seem to be in line with other museums.  What percentage of natural history collections were in our first museums and what proportion they represent today? What can we learn from our history?  

    • Every museum has the oldest speciments in its collections. How and how often do we use them? Our experience with valuable examples: what requirements we need to consider and how do we solve them.
